We would go out early-sometimes getting on the river by five o’clock, me driving my old Suzuki Jeep switched rivers, as July gave way to August we switched again, and each switch fulfilled a certain destiny for a certain number of fish. Mr. Simms was a great caster, and always took more fish than I. He was as unconsciously a part of the river as any man I have ever fished with

In Lines on the Water, David Adams Richards writes eloquently and movingly about his life on the shores of one of the world's great fishing rivers. About David Adams Richards. Born in 1950 in Newcastle, New Brunswick, David Adams Richards was the third of William and Margaret Richards' six children. He found his calling at the age of fourteen, after reading Oliver Twist, and embarked on a life of extraordinary purpose, one which he says didn't help his finances: "Sometimes.

David Adams Richards has won numerous awards for his fiction and nonfiction. This is a well-written memoir about David Richards' immersion into the life on fly fishing as he grows up on the Miramichi River in New Brunswick, Canada. He lives in Toronto with his wife, Peggy, and their sons, John Thomas and Anton. I picture the opening lines being read by that deep Garrison-Keller like voice at the opening of a movie and the book maintains this poetic flavor throughout. Richards starts his book in his childhood with his initial fishing experiences with his brother, friends, uncles and other figures.

Book by David Adams Richards

Manris
I was hoping for more content on fishing the Miramichi ( Line On The Water ). as the secondary title ( A Fisherman's Life on the Miramichi ), to me was the more correct title for this book. I did however enjoy the read.

I read this book and every fishing trip I have ever been on came rushing back. As I read I could feel the weight of the fly vest on my shoulders and smell the campfire. No one other than a down home salmon fisherman could have written this book. While he fished the Mirimichi I fished the Restigouche and once had the privilidge of meeting his Uncle, Richard Adams, on the Matepedia.
I know the beauty of the land and the feeling of a line tighten under a heavy fish, Everything is so real, from the sound of the water and the singing of a reel being stripped of its line down to the irritating buzzing of the bugs. He speaks of the friendships on the river so accurately one knows it is not fiction.
A wonderful read that I tore through and will sit down again to read it again to savour anything I may have missed.
My only regret is there were only 5 stars to give it.

Reflections of growing up over 50 years on the famous Miramichi River in New Brunswick. The author was born with a handicap that he overcomes. He is a profound observer of life and people, and a gifted storyteller. A very enjoyable read that will leave you thinking.

David Richards truly expresses the beauty and subtlety of fly fishing magnificenly. Whether a fly fisherman or not, this book truly is an enjoyable read. Through detailed and off-beat decriptions of his life and his love of the river, he reminds me why I love to read!

Great read about a great river. If you like the solitude of a quiet river and a tight line, then you'll like this book
